Simply so, can you drill out a lock?
Attach a 1/4-inch (6.5mm) or larger drill bit to your drill, and go through the lock again with the larger bit to break up the pins more and open the lock. Insert the blade of a flat-headed screwdriver into the lock head. Turn the locking mechanism in the same direction as you would with a key.
how do you break a door lock with a screwdriver? If you're locked on the other side, look for a tiny hole on the doorknob. Push an eyeglasses screwdriver, a paper clip hammered flat, or a very small butter knife into this hole. Push it straight through as far as you can, and turn or twist it until it catches a groove and the lock clicks open. Pick the lock.

How to Drill a Barrel Lock
- Place a piece of masking tape over the lock. Press it down firmly, so you can see the small circular area in the center of the barrel.
- Drill into the lock at medium speed for approximately 3/4 inch.
- Continue drilling at a slow speed until you feel the drill bit catch the latch bar, which will pop open the lock.
Can you drill out a Master Lock?
Try an electric drill. A drill should go right through the center of the lock where the mechanism is. This won't work on most master locks, and will likely disable the lock so it cannot even be opened with the proper key.
